International law, more specifically the TRIPs agreement, does:

Art. 2 (2) TRIPs:
 For the purposes of this Agreement, the term 'intellectual property' refers
to all categories of intellectual property that are the subject of Sections
1 through 7 of Part II.

I'm not sure if any law has a more precise definition. The term IP
is well-enough understood as a term of art for copyrights, patents,
trademarks, semiconductor rights, plant breeders' rights and so on.
